Microgreen Nutrients in a Nutshell

Below you will find a quick nutrient profiles of popular sprouts. These sprouts when planted become microgreens.  Unlike sprouts, only the green shoot or grass is consumed/juiced. Sprouts are consumed whole.  The main nutrient difference between a microgreen and sprout is that a microgreen contains minimal starch, lower calories and a lot more chlorophyll.


Depending on your digestive health, a sprout may be difficult to digest compared to a microgreen. The higher fiber levels and concentrated starch may have a lot to do with that. On the other hand go ahead and try sprouting at home and see for yourself. Sprouts are awesome in general!
